Aliens, Tibet and funny drugs with Yakuza's Bruce Lamont...

The Rock Show has found an alternative, temporary home right here:



Are you a fan of The Darkness, Muse, Coheed and Cambria or Enslaved? No? Then fuck off.

 If you are, however and you wonder what makes the boys in Chicago odd sonic balls, Yakuza tick, click on the link above. Vocalist and wind instrumentalist, Bruce Lamont has a few things to get off his chest on aliens, spirituality, drugs and latest album, 'Beyul'...

Next week, I'll be chatting to the lovely Dominique Persi from another bunch of musical weirdos - STOLEN BABIES!! Finally, a woman! I am so sick of chatting with guys...

The last month has been rather eventful on a variety of fronts, though I could not possibly discuss my personal life for fear of it clouding my professional achievements. Cough. Cough. Cough. Mainly because my personal life seems to have turned into the circus that I had always shied away from in the past. Pants on fire.

Not sure whether it was because of the new members or old members returning to the fold after a drug-induced hiatus or whether it was because puppet master, Claudio Sanchez had instr…
